PowWow (dance) competition in July is amazing

We attend the PowWow every year; July 25-26 in 2015. The only problem is that there is not enough seating in the arena for everyone; worth getting a seat 20 minutes before the... read more

This is a great event in Ontario to learn about First Nations culture. There is lots of Native crafts, art & food to enjoy. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming.

This is a competitive pow wow held on the largest First Nations Territory in Canada. Many food and craft vendors, and grand entry is not to be missed.

I have read a number of reviews about the reserve and I feel I need to weigh in. My wife and I, being huge lacrosse fans, (played since the early 70's) have come many times to the ILA (Iroquois Lacrosse Arena) to watch and support the Six Nations teams. This year, incidentally, the Arrows, Rebels and Chiefs all won their... More

The pow wow`s are really good but apart from that not a lot on the reserve for tourists. If its raining dont bother as it is very muddy. food is always good and the dancers and costumes are spectacular

Drove throught this part of Ontario and when we visited we noticed numerous rustic looking huts selling cigarettes. I was always under the impression that the Six Nations peoplw were proud of their culture but the numerous huts selling cigarettes certainly gave me a different impression of this area.
